Nobody's every done a "have a generated ChangeLog" release before.
I tried to adjust the documentation and M-x add-release-logs accordingly.
My idea was that line would be in the tarfile in (non-versioned)
ChangeLog, and not committed (to ChangeLog.2) till the actual release.
This is basically how it used to work when the ChangeLog was versioned,
just with a slight tweak of having to move the entry to a different file.
